Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Compile quotes that I like

“I put my mind on evil sitting in my soul
Put my mind on evil just a-sitting on my soul
Struggling with the devil make a soul grow old”

This quote is a stanza from the poem Crossroads by Forrest Hamer. I found it in the book Poetry Daily. I find the last line of the poem to hold the most meaning and be very true about life.

Face Wash

Yesterday my mom and I were at the store picking out suntan lotion and face lotion with SPF for our vacation Memorial day weekend. While we were there I bought a new facial cleanser and a toner. I used to use St. Ives apricot scrub but now I’ve switched to Neutrogena foaming cleanser and toner. So now I just have to make sure I can keep a routine with washing my face.

Reward System

I thinking about setting up calender and sticker system. It might be a little juvenile, but if it works for little kids then why can’t it work for big kids too. My idea is to make a chart for every week and every time I complete a daily task, like brushing my teeth, washing my face, drinking a certain amount of water, then I get a to check off that box for the day. If anything it’ll give me a visual of my progress and remind me of all the thing I want/need to do every day.
